Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Verzasca valley. Vogorno lake. A couple stands by the empty reservoir of Verzasca dam. They walk on the old road which is normally under the water. The reservoir is dried due to the first renovation works since dam’s construction (60 years ago). The Contra Dam, commonly known as the Verzasca Dam, is an arch dam on the Verzasca River. The dam creates the Vogorno lake, a water surface area of 1.68 km2. On the sides of mountains, the village of Vogorno (R). 22.01.22 © 2022 Didier Ruef
